Dr. Kurt Kacer

My philosophy is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a friendly, caring and fun environment. Being an orthodontist is the best job in the world! The office provides a valuable service in an upbeat setting that makes people feel better about themselves and allows them to enjoy better dental health. Providing the positive change a great smile creates is very satisfying.

The hands-on training that I received in my years of school has enabled me to provide effective and accurate treatment to my patients. At the completion of my orthodontic training, I was awarded the Clinical Excellence Award. In addition, I furthered my knowledge by attending continuing education courses to keep up on the latest advancements in my field.

Dr. Caroline Kacer

I was raised in Tucson, Arizona most of my life. I attended the University of Arizona and received my Bachelors in Science in the area of Physiology with a minor in chemistry. My pursuit to follow in my father’s footsteps as an oral surgeon led me to continue my career by attending dental school at Case Western Reserve University where I met my husband and bought my first real winter coat and boots. I had a passion of helping people and being part of a community that helps people smile. After finishing my DMD I attended Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY to complete my residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. It was here that I gained my knowledge in facial trauma and specialty in wisdom teeth extraction and implants. During all the long hours in school I was still able to squeeze in some yoga classes and some amazing Broadway shows.

I am a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, participate in the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), and the Western Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. I participate in TuNidito and I am creating a nonprofit program, “DEED4DEED”, that focuses on a pay-it-forward concept to help people receive dental needs by giving back to others.
Now that I am back in Tucson I continue to develop my practice as a yogi. I play in the garden with my daughter, Grace, and my husband, Kurt. I love to cook and enjoy an occasional volleyball game. I enjoy my work and love the interactions and new relationships I make with my patients daily. If I am not on the ice taking care of one of our Tucson Roadrunners Hockey players I am at the University taking in a football game.

After helping hundreds of different patients over the years, I have seen how tooth and gum problems can affect people’s lives in so many ways. It can affect our sense of well-being and our overall health. It can also affect our confidence and how we interact with others. In my career as a dentist, I have advanced my skill set through continued education to allow myself to provide my patients with the best in comprehensive care. It is my goal to provide each patient with an enjoyable and comfortable experience to help them in any way. I strive to understand what my patients’ goals are and to work with them to find the best solution.

I was raised just outside of the city of Toronto, in an area called Mississauga. Being fascinated with how the body and mind work, I completed my undergraduate studies in psychology at the University of Toronto and then a Master’s program in Kinesiology at York University. I continued my education track to becoming a dentist at the University of Southern California. After being exposed to all the different specialties, I quickly directed my attention to Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. I was fortunate to be accepted into the highly competitive Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency program at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. This invaluable experience allowed me to refine my surgical skills and gain exposure to a wide range of complex cases. Throughout my residency, I worked closely with esteemed mentors, honing my expertise in dental implants, wisdom teeth extractions, facial trauma, reconstruction, and other specialized procedures. Now, as an oral surgery associate, I am excited to embark on the next chapter of my professional journey in Tucson, Arizona. I am committed to providing exceptional patient care, utilizing the latest advancements in oral surgery and staying up-to-date with the latest research and techniques to provide the highest standard of care to my patients.

Twila Garcia

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Twila Garcia and I have been in the dental field since 1998. I started off as a dental assistant through the Red Cross Program. I graduated from Dental Hygiene School in 2003 and then again in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. I have a deep passion for my career, and educating my patients is always my top priority.

I am married and have three incredible children. My husband’s job has taken us to a number of exotic locations. We have lived in Japan, Panama, Nigeria, Texas, Kansas and now Arizona. He is a Lt. Colonel in The United States Air Force and has proudly served for 29 years.



I was raised in Tucson most of my life. I graduated from Pima Community College’s dental hygiene program in 2009. I worked as a dental assistant for 10 years prior to my hygiene career. With over 23 years of dental experience, I take great pride in educating my patients about oral hygiene. You can expect a thorough cleaning and gentle touch during your visit with me.

In my spare time, I enjoy working out, traveling, cooking, and trying new restaurants. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I recently got engaged and will be getting married in February 2023. Combined, my fiancé and I share three sons. 

I look forward to seeing you in our office!



Born and raised in Western Washington, my family moved to Tucson in 2000. Shortly after moving to Arizona, I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Still, I found myself back in Tucson after receiving my bachelor’s degree. At the time, I was bent on living in cold places and moved to Minnesota to get my degree in dental hygiene. I survived two Minnesota winters and came back to Tucson in 2010 with a new appreciation for the desert and ready to take the dental world by storm. 

My dental hygiene experience includes periodontics and general dentistry. My favorite aspect of dentistry is the variety of people I meet. I enjoy spending time with friends and family in my downtime and trying local restaurants. I am looking forward to meeting you at DentalPros!



I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I joined the United States Air Force (USAF) Reserves in 2003 to broaden my horizons, but before joining the USAF I was a dental assistant for a total of 11 years. After joining the military, I moved to Northern California, then crossed over to the California National Guard in Southern California in 2014 where I continue to serve my country. With retirement around the corner, I decided to return to school and start my new adventure. In 2021, I graduated from West Coast University, Anaheim, California with a Bachelor of Science from the dental hygiene program.

The best part of my job as a dental hygienist is building a rapport with my patients, and the ability to help them maintain good oral health and educate them. In my spare time, I enjoy a good walk, hiking, and exercise – but most of all spending time with family and friends, especially my son.

I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ. I completed my Dental Hygiene degree in 2012 at Pima Community College. I truly enjoy my work in dentistry and getting to meet and treat a variety of patients. I feel accomplished when I can make people with negative memories of dentistry comfortable and happy to be receiving dental care. Also, I love spending time educating and encouraging patients to maintain good periodontal health. My husband and I are parents to three wonderful girls; I enjoy spending family time together, hiking, running and cooking.

I was born in Hermosillo, Mexico, and I’ve been in Tucson for 25 years. I received my degree in Dental Hygiene from Pima Community College in 2012. I love being a part of the excellent team at DentalPros. I particularly enjoy providing dental care to entire families, getting to know each one of them, and seeing their progress. My primary goal is for the patient to have the best possible and stress-free experience. I’m still trying to convince myself that I enjoy hiking. I am married and have three handsome boys.
